I like to play music when I sew or when I sketch and right now my favorite CD is June Tabor and Oysterband's Ragged Kingdom. I love Oysterband's Granite Years, too, so it's often a toss-up for which one I'll listen to first :o)
Wednesday night, Oysterband won the BBC's Folk Music Awards for Best Band, Best Album, Best Traditional Track and June Tabor won Folk Singer of the Year. So, seriously, if you like folk music at all, you're bound to love these guys.
It's great sewing music, too.
